The Desire is one of those phones that continuously offer up a solid HTC and Android experience in an awesome little profile.

Today however brings us news, that the Desire 601 will be making its stateside. Virgin Mobile has announced today they would be offering up the new Desire 601. The carrier however plans on dropping the 601 nomenclature and potentially confusing the world by branding the handset as just the HTC Desire! The carrier will be offering up the handset contract free for approximately $280. Keep in mind their plans start at $35. This new HTC Desire starts with a 4.5 inch 540×960 IPS LCD touch screen display and gives users access to Android version 4.2.2. Around back of the Desire we find a 5 mega pixel camera with LED flash while a front facing shooter clocks in with a VGA quality sensor.
